No pictures at all, at it's best just blury colours

Got my developed film back and all I got were pictures seperated into 4 boxes with one colour a box, often even black yellowish/ light brown. no details at all. this must be a camera problem, right. i was very carefull to take all the pictures outside with sunlight. must be something wrong with my camera i suppose, maybe a shutter problem. anybody who has had the same problem? is there another solution than buying a new camera?

It will not download pics to my computer

The camera you describe uses 35mm film and is not a digital camera. You need to take the film to a local film processor (most major stores like Target or Costco can process film) to have the film developed. You cannot directly transfer the pictures from the camera to your computer.

By olympus mju II 80Zoom with film lucky 100, the photos come out all blue, i feel sad. can i show you the picture?

There's no way for the camera itself to cause this fault, so it's either due to the lighting, the wrong film, bad processing or out of date/badly stored film. Keeping the exposed film for a long while before sending it to be processed can also produce a strong colour cast.

I suggest that you upload sample photos to a website and then post a link to them. Also, please state what film you used and whether you have had the same problem from more than a single film. If so, were they all processed at the same time and place?

In the meantime, you may wish to re-check that your remaining unused film is still in date (use by/process by dates are normally printed on the outer carton) and that they've been kept away from high temperatures. You may also wish to contact the company which processed your film as they may very likely be at fault if they've made mistakes or failed to maintain their equipment and chemicals. Note that some processors now digitally scan and then print your negatives, so scanner or printer faults can also produce a strong colour cast.

Only prints brown pictures???

Are the ink cartridges new or old? Old cartridges will not develop well, maybe that's what's going on. Other than that, I have no clue what's going on with it.

35mm film, preferably ISO 200 or 400, although on bright days you can easily use ISO 100 as well. You can choose between 12 (scarce and not worth it), 24 or 36 exposures and check that the film has not passed it's expiry date as it can result in poor colours and contrast.

Users have their own brand preferences, Fuji and Kodak tend to have brighter and more vivid colours, Agfa tends to be more earthy and natural in tone, and most store own brands will tend to resemble Agfa. You won't go far wrong with any of them. If you prefer you can also use monochrome (a.k.a. black and white) film, but unless it says on the side of the box that it's "C41 compatible" then you'll need to use a processing lab which specialises in monochrome. C41 is the name of the processing system used for colour film and so C41 monochrome can be processed by a regular High St or drug-store minilab.

I have a polaroid film 600 camera where can I get a battery for it, and how do I change it's battery?

The battery comes built in to the photo pack. All photo packs are now past their use by dates though as they have been out of production for more than a year, so any which you do find may have weak or flat batteries.

Photo packs which have been kept refrigerated will have better colour production and more accurate contrast but are far more likely to have flat batteries. Photo packs stored at around a constant twenty degrees Celsius are more likely to have a good battery, but there is a greater chance of poor photo colours & contrast and there is a greater chance that the photo ejection rollers will fail to squeeze the developing chemicals evenly across the photo.

The camera can be modified to take an external film pack, but it's a DIY job using whatever you have to hand; unfortunately I can't recall what the correct voltage is but if you ask another question on FixYa then someone will know.

The shutter button does not appear to click down and the lense does not open so no picture is taken. Usually it makes a sound and you know the picture has taken. HELP MEEE????

I had a similar problem with another brand of this type of camera. I would click the shutter and hear it open but it would not go through the series of four lens exposures unless I manually turned the film advance wheel . I think it may be because the motor isn't strong enough to draw the film across and trigger the shots. cheap plastic, ya know. I never got the film developed but im interested to see if it got anything at all.

The first part of my pack of filmthe pictures came out fine, but towards the end there was a brownish film over parts of the image and nothing was exposed in that section. any ideas what's wrong? Is it the...

This is due to old film. All photo packs are now past their use by dates and as it ages the chemical pack in each photo thickens and the ejection rollers are less able to squeeze it into the distant corners. The brownish film is the actual film surface which has not had the developing emulsion spread across it.

You haven't specified what camera model you have, but I suspect the problem could be due to the white balance setting on the camera. Read your owners manual and check the section on adjusting the white balance. If you have it set for something opposite to the actual ambient lighting condition (ie the setting is for incandescent light bulbs, and you are shooting outdoors in sunlight, for example), then it can really throw the colour spectrum off.

I bought this camera at Value Village for $1.99. It came up with an E. I assumed this was an E for empty. I loaded a film and it is fine.

Panoramic pictures??

A panoramic photo on 35mm film is just cutting off the top and bottom. even if you can't set the camera that way, you can ask your local photo store to print any shot that way for you. Usually 2x the price of 4x6.
